lil' nugget there
Google, which has built a network where more than 200,000 businesses and Web sites now bid for the right to have their ads distributed across the Internet.

So the total number of adwords customers is no more than 300k?

Given ,if it were more, they would have used that 300k figure .

I think it's great and greatly simplifies my life.

Now I can just ignore MSN search and PPC as being irrelevant.

There are 400,000 GAW accts (end of 2005). It's expected to rise by about 100K per year for the next two years.

So can we now hopefully expect some antitrust suits filed against the monopolist google in the near future? Very very sad day indeed. Looks like MSN is going to live Netscape's fate.

Not likely, since Google isn't a monopoly and hasn't engaged in anticompetitive behavior.

(Contrary to popular belief, it isn't illegal to be more successful than your competitors.)
